BASF, the North American affiliate of BASF SE, is launching the use of its Ultramid Endure polyamide with high heat aging resistance up to 220-degree C in turbocharged engine technology.
The company is taking this step because predictions indicate that 70 percent of light vehicles worldwide will use turbocharged engine technology by 2020.
There are two new engine applications using the company's high heat resistant Endure thermoplastics; the air intake manifold with integrated charge air cooler, and hot-side turbo duct. Both launched on the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia with the new 2.0L GME engine. The Ultramid Endure portfolio can be used in many air induction applications of the turbocharged system, including the air intake manifold, charge-air ducts, resonators, intercooler end caps and throttle bodies. It can also achieve long-term service temperatures of 220-degree C, and withstand peak temperatures of 240-degree C.
